The Thief

Design-Forward Delight

What it is

Stealing our hearts: this 118 room art district star, with a candlelit spa pool and a museum-quality art collection.

What it isn't

Parking your car (in fact, the entire Tjuvholmen neighborhood, a.k.a. “Thief Island,” is car-free).

What we think

There’s no such thing as a “basic” guest room here, where even the starter room category is equipped with a private balcony, floor to ceiling windows that peep out on the buzzing cityscape, a Geneva sound system, and thoroughly Scandi decor, from the Hoie of Scandinavia down duvets to the Hilding Anders king size bed. (Other luxuries: Nespresso machines, turndown service, The Thief custom bathrobes and the coziest ever slippers by A. Andreassen.) In fact, the only thing “starter” here is the size—258-square-feet—so if you’re built like a Viking, consider upgrading to a roomier Junior Suite, at 430-square-feet with a southern overlook of Oslofjord. Be sure to stop by the Thief Spa, where you can meander from a Turkish hammam to the swimming cove before your treatment (get the warm clay massage).

You're here because

The hotel has a seasonal rooftop grill that has an eye-popping panorama over both city and harbor aaaand an indulgent menu (note the housemade chocolate mousse with popcorn and salted carmel).

The Moment

Not even Thor could have imagined a dinner this indulgent—so it’s no wonder you’re surrounded by Oslo locals in the hotel restaurant. Mussels steamed in garlic and apple with Handwerk sourdough bread; a ricotta and pine nut salad in basil emulsion; and grilled arctic char atop squid ink spaghetti.
